Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

A person should never ask Allah Ta‘ala to test him with calamities and difficulties. Instead, he should always beg Allah Ta‘ala for ‘aafiyah (ease). However, if Allah Ta‘ala tests a person with calamities and difficulties, then he should adopt sabr (patience) and understand that this is, in actual fact, a form of mercy from Allah Ta‘ala. Through adopting sabr and remaining patient, one’s sins will be forgiven and his rank will be raised in the Hereafter. One should also remember that all the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), the Siddeeqeen and the pious friends of Allah Ta‘ala were tested during their lives with trials and tribulations and they gained great blessings and favours of Allah Ta‘ala through remaining patient. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 27)

 

Down and Moody

Sometimes we do have those unpleasant days, where we feel down and low, moody and irritable. Often on such occasions we tend to make the biggest mistake by blurting out our thoughts and feelings. The devil and our base desires deceive us to think that we are getting everything off our chests and we will thereafter feel much lighter and better. However our explosive reaction only adds to our pain and and makes us later regret.

The wiser and more intelligent thing to do is to turn our gaze away from all the negatives around us and focus on the positives. This will help to bring about some balance within us. Thereafter we should smile and others will smile with us. We should speak good and do good to others, and we ourselves will automatically feel good again. Before we know it, we will once more be feeling better and in high spirits. Then, in a rational and positive manner, address the issues that are necessary to attend to. Otherwise, adopt patience and take the innumerable rewards from Allah Ta‘ala.

 

Serving his Ustaaz

The only reason that Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) had given himself up for imprisonment in Malta was to serve his ustaaz, Shaikhul Hind Moulana Mahmoodul Hasan (rahmatullahi ‘alaih). Hazrat Moulana Madani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) rendered such service that Shaikhul Hind (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned to his wife, “My own son would not have been able to render the service which Molvi Husain Ahmad had made for me.”

Because Malta was extremely cold, and there was no hot water to make wudhu with, Hazrat Moulana Madani (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) would hold the water bag to his stomach the entire night just so that it would be warm enough for his ustaaz to use at the time of Tahajjud.

(Hazrat Moulana Husain Ahmad Madani [rahmatullahi ‘alaih] pg. 219)

 

A Phone Call Away

Nowadays many people generally only meet family members on the occasion of a death or a wedding in the family. While it may not be possible to travel and meet family members who live long distances away from us, we can occasionally give them a phone call just to greet them and find out as to how they are keeping.

We will be surprised as to what du‘aas and supplications a simple phone call can earn for ourselves. Perhaps an old aunt is sick or bedridden and feeling very low. You called, and her spirits were boosted once again. Your voice brought a smile to her face and her heart instantaneously flows with du‘aas for you.

We tend to forget that our progress and achievements are very often due to the du‘aas of those around us. At times we focus on the big things in life, forgetting that even the little things really do count.

‘Ali bin Husain (rahimahullah), also known by the title Zainul ‘Aabideen, was the grandson of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and the son of Sayyiduna Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

On one occasion, Zainul ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) was performing wudhu while his slave girl was assisting him by pouring the water onto his limbs from a pitcher. As she was pouring the water, it so happened that the pitcher fell from her hand, striking Zainul ‘Aaibdeen (rahimahullah) on his head and injuring him. On suffering the injury, Zainul ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) looked up at the slave girl (in anger).

The slave girl addressed him saying, “Allah Ta‘ala mentions (while describing the people of taqwa):

وَالْكَاظِمِينَ الْغَيْظَ

And those who suppress their anger

As soon as he heard this, Zainul ‘Aabideen (rahimahullah) responded, “I have suppressed my anger.”
